All the stuff that I would like to see happening year round in the D-town is at least happening in anticipation for the superbowl. It makes me sad that it takes football to get all the good stuff happening, but at least it's happening so take advantage of it while it's here.
IE: check out Motown Winter Blast happening Tuesday Feb. 2 - Sunday Feb. 5th.
Along with live music (including the fantastic Black Bottom Collective playing Friday at 6 pm)
they have a 200 foot snow slide and dog sledding (is the theme Alaska?) for which I hear they are creating fake snow!
GM is setting up an ice garden while Ford is providing and ice skating rink! Don't you love it when the auto companies start competeing for the attention of Detroiters again?!
